    That was my whole point. She looked cool but never was cool. I was implying the same may be true of Sith Troopers.

    I'm not excited about this design, to be honest. It's basically just a red stormtrooper... They missed an opportunity to introduce something more creative. But the name is intriguing for sure - I just hope JJ is not throwing "Sith" around lightly.

    What if they're like "anti-Sith" troopers? Hunting for Palpatine's potential minions or whatever. Would be interesting and true to Kylo's "let old things die" sentiment. But then they're linked to that new Sith symbol so that's probably not the case...

    PS. Death troopers remain the coolest. ;)

    I think it is a very cool looking design. I hope they play an important role.

    Based on this poster, there will be a lot of Sith Troopers. This leads me to believe they will be replacing the standard issue Storm Trooper once Palpatine reveals himself.

    I made this point elsewhere, but this ^ leaked image really contributes to my clone speculation. In promos, when have we ever seen that many Stormtroopers in that sort of uniform formation? It reminds me much more of marketing around the Clones from the AotC era.

    [​IMG]

    Either way, I doubt they're *replacing* FO stormtroopers because we see other FO stormtroopers on the poster.

    Glad someone enjoys it. Just not one I'll be rushing out to add to my collection. I don't care about attachments and pouches man. It smacks of "let's just paint it red. You know, cause red and the Sith. Yeah." KOTOR era troopers looked way cooler. But hey to each his/her own, as the saying goes. :)

    That's not a real poster is it? It looks like a Photoshop one.

    It was leaked a long while ago. It's been right about everything, Claude, Dio, Sith Troopers, Kylo's mask, etc. So while I don't think it's an official poster, I think it was a draft poster for merchandise, toys, etc.

    I'm happy to see anything related to The Rise of Skywalker. I doubt the revelation of Sith Troopers is a huge plot point for the movie, but maybe it is. Regardless, they gave us something for SDCC so we didn't have to wait till D23 next month, and I am thankful. I think the armor looks great. I liked that the Praetorian Guards looked ready for battle more than the ceremonial Imperial Guards from the OT did. These Sith Troopers look more like they are ready to kick in doors and raid buildings. I love all the guessing as to if they're clones and the implication of the Sith name. These conversations are as much a part of Star Wars as anything else.

    This is a great time to be a Star Wars fan! Enjoy!

    That reminds me, they better start promoting the movie soon because, outside us, the hype isn't really there yet.

    I love the new design! Something I noticed is that the new Sith troopers are not affiliated with the First order but the Sith order themselves if you look at the packaging. Now I'm extremely convinced that Darth Sidious has been pulling the strings this whole time. Since Kylo Ren leads the First Order then I'm sure that the Dark Lord had a third faction ready just in case this scenario happened. Maybe these Sith troopers were pulled from the ranks of the First Order, discharged, and then made to serve the Sith Order only since they do use a modified version of the First Order storm trooper armor. They could be only a small private army or actual Sith empire that's openly loyal to the Sith and get into a civil war with the First Order! Time will tell! (pwned)(red)

    Perhaps like how Palpatine used the Clones to rid the galaxy of the Jedi, perhaps his plan may be to use the Sith Troopers to rid the galaxy of the First Order?

    Sort of like "Look to me, your benevolent Emperor, I have rid the galaxy of the evil First Order"

    I love the look. Really excited for TROS!

    Using your logic, George was lazy when having the villians wear all black and carry red lightsabers, 'cause you know there bad (besides Luke). For that matter, have the good guys wear only grey/white colors, green and blue lightsabers.

    Sorry my friend, but if you can't see the difference, then so be it. We will have to agree to disagree. But as someone who collects Star Wars hot toys, and has dropped a pretty penny on these things, this is lazy stuff man. "I know, let's take a Storm trooper and call it... wait for it, a Sith Trooper!!!!!! And we can make it... RED!!!"

    You wanna shill for mediocrity? Go ahead. Be my guest. But this is lazy. L.A.Z.Y. Lazy. Weak sauce even.

    And no, using my logic is not the same as what George did. But good try. :cool:

    Anyway, I am hoping that this is going to tie into the story in SOME way, and not be another Captain Phasma situation. We shall see. Clones being used by Palpatine to reconquer the galaxy? Destroy the F.O? Could be interesting. In some ways I'm looking forward to this film. I just think I need to see another trailer before I can say for sure. But so far it is intriguing (if not always inspiring in some of the costuming choices).

    Well that's obviously not Lucasfilm or Disney's fault... and I haven't spent a penny on toys. So, I don't live in that headspace.

    Of course it isn't because Disney is bad and lazy. "Lets have Yoda carry a green lightsaber, 'cauze get this he is GREEN" *drop the mic* :rolleyes: So, what color would you have them? Pink?:rolleyes: I'll reserve judgment on the Sith part of it till release.

    i spend the money for Hot Toys and even though i think another stormtrooper is a bit redundant and haven't collected every single variant, this one in particular is almost a completely different sculpt, right down to his toes (even the undersuit is different and that's something they could have easily been lazy about). so it's not as if he's just painted red. someone had to design this and it had to go through a completely different production mold from the other figure. it also looks like he has all new weapons, and since you buy Hot Toys, you know how detailed those can be with moving parts, etc.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    i probably won't buy this unless his role in the film blows me away, but i would not call this a lazy offering. : D
    much less investment went into this guy, who shares most of the same parts as the other stormies:

    I think the look is cool. I’m not sure how significant their role in the movie will be but it would not surprise me if we never hear the name Sith trooper. They could have a big part in the movie but we might only see Sith trooper in the the credits and on toy packages
